Leaning into the Word means to have a positioned posture to receive, accept and ultimately apply the learned material and/or revelation to your daily life and walk with Christ. Leaning into a message, spoken word and focusing on what is meant specifically for you has the ability to transform your heart and mind. Transformation is a process and like the caterpillar you can be wrapped up in the dark, growing weight and wings, and as the light cracks metamorphosis has taken place. As this process is matured the decision to continue absorbing the nutritional value of the cocoon and acknowledge the new strength of our wings will determine how high we’re willing to fly!
Example: How much you pay attention to what is being said and the message being delivered depends on your hunger for growth. How much you desire to read scripture and inspirational books may notate your spiritual thirst. How you choose to spend your time can reveal your desires.
Healthy Choice: Today I will evaluate what I choose to lean into. I will pay attention and take note of whose voice I’m listening to and what I allow in through TV, radio, and social media. I can create a list of daily activities and choose options to lean into that are valuable, nutritional, and satisfying to me. I will feed my spiritual hunger and thirst. I will grow and Fly!
Diet Tip: What you are hungering and thirsting for physically can reveal a deficiency in certain vitamins and nutrients.
